Fire destroys Market Street structure

PARKERSBURG – An early morning fire destroyed a Market Street structure, and officials are still looking for the owner.

Crews responded around 3 a.m. to reports of a fire in a wooded area behind 1331 Market St. The garage-like structure was fully involved when crews reached the scene, and the building was a total loss.

One firefighter was slightly injured while fighting the fire, but no medical attention was needed. Officials are still investigating the cause of the fire and are trying to contact Patricia Weigle of Vienna, who is believed to be the owner of the structure.
